Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

The first time one of my horses was bitten by a rattlesnake, I went into panic mode for a couple of minutes. Then I remembered that I knew a lot of information, and I started to get my oils out.

I first used the Purification oil blend on the bite in the middle of his nose, then used Ledum and Helichrysum. I did a H.E.A.R.T. Treatment, followed by Raindrop and used a couple of homeopathics as well. I continued to apply the oils every couple of hours during the day. Within twenty four hours, the swelling was completely down and there was no sloughing of tissue anywhere on his face.

The second horse was bitten on the inside of her front leg at the knee. She did not particularly like to be caught, so her treatment was delayed by 48 hours. She also got a H.E.A.R.T. Treatment and Raindrop and had the wound cleaned with Thieves Household Cleanser daily.

The leg was very swollen, and because we didn't get to start treating it right away, there was sloughing of tissue as well. I used Lavender in a misting bottle to help the skin heal. It took about ten days with this filly, but she healed just fine.
